Sooyoung will be playing sports agency CEO Seo Dan Ah, who was the only child of Seomyung Group but was pushed down the order of successors for being female.

In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Sooyoung exudes confidence and poise as her character Seo Dan Ah. Her gaze is cool and charismatic, and her sophisticated aura is further enhanced by her stylish outfits.

In the drama, Sooyoung will be pairing up with Kang Tae Oh, who plays Lee Young Hwa, a popular art student who is handsome, kind, and charming. Seo Dan Ah, who is used to having everything she wants, isn’t able to win Lee Young Hwa over so easily, and viewers will be thrilled with their unique romance.

She has been receiving lots of love in “Run On”!

1. Her bickering “womance”

Seo Dan Ah and Oh Mi Joo (Shin Se Kyung) have a peculiar relationship where they are even more drawn to each other because they are such opposites. However, both characters are brutally honest and incredibly stubborn. Although they had a rough first meeting, Seo Dan Ah grows intrigued by Oh Mi Joo after seeing how well she sticks to her word. While she’s typically very professional, Seo Dan Ah lets loose around Oh Mi Joo, joking around and sending her winks so they can grow closer. Although the bickering will likely never end, Seo Dan Ah has now turned her attention to helping Oh Mi Joo and Ki Sun Kyum (Im Siwan) grow closer, developing her “battle friendship” with Oh Mi Joo at the same time.

2. Her high-speed romance

Seo Dan Ah first meets art student Lee Young Hwa (Kang Tae Oh) for an art piece but the two had completely different purposes. Seo Dan Ah felt comforted by Lee Young Hwa’s “drawing without foundation,” but Lee Young Hwa had completely fallen for Seo Dan Ah after finally feeling recognized for his artwork. Due to his lack of boundaries, Seo Dan Ah initially feels burdened by Lee Young Hwa but also ends up going out of her way to meet him personally to pick up her drawing. The pair show off great chemistry with their high-speed romance and no-filter conversations, allowing viewers to anticipate what’s in store for the couple.

3. Her “person”

Due to her hectic and competitive life, Seo Dan Ah’s secretary Jung Ji Hyun (Yeon Jae Wook) is the only person she feels comfortable calling “her person.” They may be tied together through a business relationship but Seo Dan Ah views Jung Ji Hyun as much more than just a business partner. When Jung Ji Hyun gets attacked by her older brother Seo Myung Min (Lee Shin Ki), she makes sure to get her sweet revenge. On the other hand, Jung Ji Hyun makes sure to take care of his workaholic boss’s health.

Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung shares about her role as a CEO in the upcoming JTBC drama “Run On”. 

Sooyoung revealed that both Seo Dan Ah and Lee Young Hwa hated to lose. She explained, “Dan Ah, who has lived a hectic and busy life, will meet Young Hwa, who she wants to make time for. She’ll continue to hurt him because the feelings she’s never experienced before will feel unfamiliar to her. As that happens, she’ll discover herself making more time because she feels sorry, and they’ll progress into a relationship in which they acknowledge their love.”

Seo Dan Ah is clumsy with emotions because she has grown up amidst fierce competition within a chaebol household with a business mindset. However, her strengths outweigh her flaws as she was still able to rise to the CEO position of a sports agency and become the director of Seomyung Group.

Sooyoung shared, “She doesn’t talk behind people’s backs, she doesn’t hold grudges, and she’s honest. She’s the hard-working type who does her best at everything. Although her domain is certain, she acknowledges and embraces things that create new stimuli. She goes all-in for her people, and if someone is rude, she knows how to retort regardless of their position or age.” The actress added, “I wanted to show an intelligent and capable young woman leader.”

CEO Seo Dan Ah

Sooyoung explained that Seo Dan Ah is a character who thoroughly manages her time, but she also invests time in taking care of her appearance since she simultaneously runs a fashion company. However, Seo Dan Ah doesn’t do nail art and prefers hairstyles that cover her forehead. Sooyoung elaborated, “I think it’s because she’ll think that the time it takes for her nails to dry and to do her hair every morning would be a waste.” When asked how she completed her character with such detail, Im Siwan commented, “She has definitely been immersed in a CEO role on a regular basis,” adding that she couldn’t be better at portraying CEO Seo Dan Ah.

The actress also touched upon her first thoughts after seeing the project. She shared, “All the characters who appear seemed so cool and well off, but they’re all broken somewhere in one way. The process in which these people intertwine through a natural opportunity and become adults that learn how to converse is beautiful.” Sooyoung shared, “I wanted to express a love that would break the rules I’ve protected until now and make me forget consequences.” Regarding Kang Tae Oh, she shared, “In reality, he’s goofy and cute, so the mood on set is bright. He’s also good at acting, so I rely on him a lot.”

The production crew stated, “Seo Dan Ah is an independent character who is racing to success. Sooyoung is perfectly immersing in her role and showcasing the professional side of her intelligent character. Please look forward to her acting transformation that will captivate viewers with her elegant and bold charms.”
